I prefer prime lenses to zooms, but this makes for an excellent multi-purpose travel lens. It folds down to the size of a pancake prime, so is very unobtrusive on-camera. When you're ready to shoot, you do need to extend the lens, which makes it quite a bit longer, but still smaller than a typical standard zoom.

The f3.5-5.6 aperture is about average in terms of aperture speed for a standard zoom, although the tele-end is a bit shorter than a typical 14-40 range, so at full zoom (32mm / 64mm full-frame equivalent), it's not going to be quite as close to the action, nor quite as fast a shutter speed nor shallow a depth of field. However, the lens is also wider at the wide angle end, which I find preferable - especially for travel shots. A good range, and although slightly slow, in-body image stabilisation takes care of most issues, except for depth of field.

Some might want more metal in the barrel, but I don't - plastic is perfectly durable and better still for a travel lens as it is so lightweight. This is a great addition to a micro four thirds kit.

I recently took the lens with me on holiday to Cyprus and I have been very impressed with the results. The lens produces *very* sharp images and offers a range of angles that means you keep your kit to a minimum and travel light. The colour and contrast profile is also nice - lively without being cartoonish. Beautiful, sharp images. I still love using my Panasonic 20mm and 14mm primes, and would likely prefer those in lower light and night shots, but for most purposes, this is a really great micro four thirds lens. I also had an Olympus telephoto zoom with me, and the difference in quality is stark - the telephoto lens was soft throughout its range and had muted colours. I won't be using the Oly again.

One of the reasons I like the mft format is that you can mix the brilliant Panasonic lenses with the superb Olympus bodies, which add image stabilisation in-camera. My only criticism of the lens is that it's a little pricey at SRP. I was fortunate enough to get it at a discount, so keep your eyes open for deals. However, knowing now how good the lens is, the full price is not entirely unreasonable.

This is my new favourite lens and lives on the camera now. I'm only a keen amateur, but I'm certainly happy with the results and its compact size means the Panasonic G3 is no bigger than a small bridge camera.

Get a 37 to 52mm filter adapter, as most of the Panasonic lenses seem to have 52mm filter threads, that way you can share filters, hoods, lens caps etc between them.

UPDATE:

Since buying this lens I have also acquired an Olympus E-PM2 body, and this lens now lives on there. The combination of the two is almost pocket-size, and performs admirably in low light (the flash never got used on my last holiday, the low-light performance was so good- even in dimly-lit pubs and restaurant).

Superb little lens, perfect for what I intend using it for.

Very nice standard lense,light and compact,better than the Olympus.

Excellent quality lens plus very compact.

outstanding lens

Great product described perfectly well

Ich habe sowohl das Olympus MFT 14-42mm Serie I als auch Serie II im Einsatz, und war von der durchwachsenen optischen Leistung des Serie II recht enttäuscht. Dass es nun ein noch wesentlich kompakteres, aber optisch deutlich besseres Objektiv in dieser Klasse gibt, find ich einfach toll. Wenn leicht und kompakt eine Rolle spielt, unbedingt zu empfehlen, grade auch für den interessanten Preis. Wenn Gewicht, Grösse und Preis keine Rolle spielen, dann gibt es natürlich bessere Linsen.
Gut zu wissen: selbst meine gute alte GF3 kann den optischen Bildstabilisator ein und ausschalten, was mangels Knopf nur über die Kamera möglich ist. Bei Olympus Gehäusen lässt sich der Objektivstabilisator nicht aktivieren, wird aber idR auch nicht benötigt.

Une optique discrète, sa taille pourrait amener à s'interroger sur ses qualités optiques, il n'en est rien. Très surprenant piqué et rendu des couleurs pour un objectif de si faible encombrement. Bien sûr, j'ai aussi des optiques performantes mais bien plus chères et lumineuses en micro43 que j'utilise pour mon travail.

Dopo 2 anni l'ho portato in assistenza perchè la ghiera che ne permette l'apertura era andata. E' stato sostituito. Nel complesso ottimo, leggero e pratico, forse troppo plasticoso.

das Objektiv ist klein und handlich und kommt damit der Philosophie von spiegellosen Systemkameras entgegen.
es hat eine guten Brennweitenbereich und ist so für die meisten Aufgaben ideal.
die Bildqualität ist auch für ein Universalzoom sehr gut.

Considerando le dimensioni Pancake, prestazioni molto buone, buon af (ottimo con focali basse ed in buona luce, un po' meno al buio a 32mm ma comunque affidabile). Peso e dimensioni da fissò Pancake e fanno una perla. L'unico a partire da una focale 12mm (24eq.).

Obbiettivo giunto in un imballaggio un pò raffazzonato, ma valido a proteggere il prodotto. Prestazioni buone, valida la nitidezza, la praticità d'uso per come è compatto e leggero, usato su olimpus om10 mII, si perde qualche automatismo ma si guadagna un 24 mm equivalente che al chiuso o nelle riprese dei monumenti o panorami è validissimo. Avevo una sony a 5000 con obbiettivo 16-50 e la qualità mi sembra superiore nella generalità degli usi, in condizioni difficili impostato in automatico dove la sony usava i 3200 iso, la olimpus usa il 1600 con migioramento della qualità complessiva della foto. Anche l'obbiettivo mi sembra di qualità superiore, ma non sono un esperto in questo campo, ho solo confrontato le mie foto con le due macchine.

Gutes G Objektiv im Weitwinkelbereich unter 28mm und immer dabei Objektiv neben
dem Kitobjektiv G 14-140mm ! Nur das manuelle Rausfahren der Optik nach dem Einschalten
könnte manchen nerven.

Es pequeño, no pesa, y acoplado a mi Lumix GX7 hace que el conjunto sea muy pequeño y ligero.
Sin embargo, la nitidez y el engoque no se ven afectados.
Estoy muy contento con él.
